Children’s Choir joins Allison Crowe

Enjoy plenty of warm holiday cheer with “Tidings” - featuring the voice and music of troubador Allison Crowe

Enjoy plenty of warm holiday cheer when “Tidings” returns to St. Peter’s Anglican Church – featuring the voices and music of troubador Allison Crowe and guests from the Campbell River Children’s Choir’s “Zephyr”.

The concert happens Thurs., Dec. 15. Music starts at 7 p.m. and doors open at 6 p.m.

Community-spirited impresario Ron Nicolaye again organizes this holiday tradition – a winter’s celebration of music that also brings some aid to a pair of extremely dedicated groups – the Campbell River Hospice Society and Campbell River food bank. Donations of non-perishable food items are greatly appreciated and will be collected on concert night.

Opening the Tidings musical program will be the voices of the “Zephyr” from the Campbell River Children’s Choir. The members of “Zephyr” are the most experienced members of the choir who

have chosen to perform more difficult music and to attend extra rehearsals.

Following intermission, Crowe stirs together traditional Christmas carols and holiday favourites with an organic blend of rock, jazz, folk, gospel and soul. Tidings is Crowe’s melding of the sacred and secular in “songs of the season” and spirit. Tickets available at IRIS (in Discovery Harbour); the Music Plant; St. Peter’s Anglican Church; and c/o Ron Nicolaye (250) 923-6972 ; and at Crowe’s online Box Office www.allisoncrowe.com/shoptickets.html Advance Tickets are $20 General/$15 Students & Seniors (Door: $22/$17).
